Estate Notes

Château Climens is Barsac's premiere wine, as well as being one of Sauternes greatest sweet wines. Climens, which is sited on the highest elevation in Barsac in the south of the Barsac appellation (just 20 metres above sea level!) is renowned for its delicacy and finesse and complexity of flavour.

Climens, which translates to 'infertile land' in Celtic, dates back 500 years, and its conspicuous soil is a distinct red hue, dotted with pebbles.

Reviews

"Charmingly fruity, with an expansive bouquet of ripe fruit, fresh honey, a vanillin oakiness, and some subtle herbal notes...plump, soft texture." Robert Parker
